Sure. Already posted in another thread but happy to show it off here as well! Once things dry out, there should be regular sightings of it on the Brushy Trails.

I will definitely blame the rain on this purchase.

I have a buddy with a bunches of orange bike. Orange frame and all the orange components you can imagine. And that's the thing. Nothing rhymes with orange and neither does it match.

Does he have one of these? I never got one as a kid, although I wanted one badly. I think that had a profound impact on me as an adult.

It's not orange enough.

Haha technically the primary color is red, but I think the sun hitting the orange metallic accents really triggered that orange explosion in the pic. I'm definitely diggin' it!

Super nice!  As long as Intense keeps making mountain bikes, I'll keep riding 'em.  The best!

Maiden Voyage! Rode Snail, Rim, 1/4 Notch, and Picnic. All GTG, albeit a bit greasy in some spots. Get you some while you can!

Really sweet! Definitely feels plusher than the original, but I'm not sure whether that is the new fork, the rimpacts, or me just wanting to believe that it is. Anyway, I'll be playing around with the suspension tuning some over the coming weeks to really get it dialed. I see the sun shining now and my last meeting of the day just cancelled; so I might be going back out for a twofer this afternoon.

I’m going to head out for a ride around 3:30. Let me know if you head to brushy and I’ll meet you out there.

Sounds like a plan dude! Shall we meet at the 183A overpass or someplace else?

183A overpass works for me. I’ll text you when I’m heading out.

Anyone hit Randy’s elbow recently? The takeoff has this weird dip right before it, I think from people braking at the top. It’s not much at all but I ate shit pretty hard going off it today. Wasn’t sure if that was the reason or just a minor brain fart by me. Probably the latter.

I'll go fix it. Haven't been hitting it since my injury .

Been wanting to make minor improvements to it anyways

Interested to know if you think that could cause it.  It’s a really small dip but It’s the first time I’ve ever slipped a pedal on a drop before.

Went out for an exploratory ride tonight. Double Down is good to go. Quarter Notch is mostly good, but puddling is a bit excessive. Best to give it a few hours of sun tomorrow. Picnic definitely needs more time to dry out - should be good tomorrow afternoon if we don't get more rain. Humidity was oppressive, bearable only due to the fact that temps were in the mid-eighties. Expecting more of the same tomorrow in that regard.

Can confirm. Was good with 1/4 although not primo and there’s a mud pit at mile 1.3 (east side) that’ll take a few days to dry. 
 

Picnic was just too soft. As such, mist other trails will not be good until late tomorrow.

Latest update...

1/4 - GTG. Note that this trail has low hanging trees that will be cleaned up tomorrow.
Double Down - GTG
Bob Ross - GTG 
Rim - GTG 
Snail - GTG - Still slick, but will be better later this afternoon 
Picnic - too soft. Recommended to hold off on riding until late afternoon/tomorrow
Mulligan - Slop city. Don’t around don’t drown
Peddlers - closed. Do not ride. 
Snow White - GTG. Sloppy creek crossing. 
Gumdrop - Sloppy, do not ride

Nothing is primo yet and some standing water exists, but zero to minimal dirt pickup. Use caution on limestone surfaces due to moisture.

That was a freakin humid 10 mile run this morning to check the trails. Blah.
